Local growers ready for season’s CSA programs

Mar 5th, 2019 | Category: Community, Farms, Features

by Grow Northwest

Following are local farms offering CSA produce options this year. Please see their websites or call them directly for availability, pricing, and other details. Additional CSA sources confirmed for the season will be listed on our website at grownorthwest.com. To send your farm’s information, please contact editor@grownorthwest.com. 

Local farmers offering Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs are busy preparing for the upcoming season. Most CSA options provide weekly boxes, allowing residents or businesses to subscribe in the late winter and early spring for a season’s worth of produce. The content of the boxes differ by farm, however generally include vegetables and fruits grown on site (or list off-site products). Some also offer extra choices and add-ons such as eggs, cheese, meat, bread, herbs and more. Enjoy the season!

CSA events

The Meet Your Farmer CSA Fair, presented by Sustainable Connections, will be held Saturday, March 30 from noon to 3 p.m. at Boundary Bay Brewery’s Mountain Room in Bellingham. All are welcome to attend this free community event, providing the community a chance to meet with local farmers offering CSA programs this season. Participants will have a chance to win $100 off their CSA share when they visit each farmer’s booth using a “passport card.”

In addition, the Sustainable Connections Member Lunch on Wednesday, March 6 will focus on connecting local businesses and employers interested in organizing a Workplace CSA or “Farm Fresh Workplace” at their business. Networking opportunities will be available to attendees. The lunch starts at 11:45 a.m. For more details or to register, see sustainableconnections.org.

 

Correction: The print edition of this article included Growing Washington as a farm offering a CSA in Whatcom and Skagit counties. The farm has decided not to do a CSA in 2019.
